Yes! And then subidvide the topics into littler topics, and then... subdivide those some more until each post has it's own folder!

It would allow to put together discussion about the stat &concept of new units (usually in Idea or developper discussion) with the corresponding graphics and will let the rest of graphic forum more organized (terrains, animations and updates). A permament link to the graphic depository on the top of the graphic topic would be good.
I would find this very useful, since that way there will be no non-art discussions hidden in 'Art Development'.

When there is more generic topic -> everything under that generic topic is in right place.
Most modded threads IIRC were not modded because they went off of the forum topic; they were going off the thread topic. Your citation of the Wose discussion turning into the Undead discussion is an example of that; both topics fit perfectly into Developer's Discussions.

I have an idea: combine User's Forum, Ideas, and Developer's Discussion into one forum, and give the Art Forum its own category.

I mean, there could certainly be crossovers between the unit graphics forum and the terrain graphics forum - think about neorice's proposed Darawrf terrain.

No, it's wenoth art. It should go in Art Development.

No, you tool, it's gonna be added to WENOTH, the branch of wesnoth that neorice has been working on.

He's probably gonna hate me for spilling the beans on this, but considering how EP already blew it, I can blame it on him. All I gotta say is that this wenoth thing is totally, the bomb, yo.

Wenoth art doesn't belong in Art Development.

Discuss development of art for the game here!
I can't think of anything other than Wenoth that could be called 'the game.'


Now, let's all SHUT UP and get back on topic!

This is what i'm suggesting is that the "art development" forum stays as it is, as seen from the main forum page. When you click on "art development" a page loads that presents you a choice of 4-6 sub forums. Under these the actually topics will appear. It should be easier for everyone to keep track of things, when the unit art is all in the same place, their pages won't be cluttered with Map or interface art topics.
Feel free to PM me if you start a new terrain oriented thread. It's easy for me to miss them among all the other art threads.

It's an attempt to describe what i mean by 2 or 3 levels of organization.
i don't know how to be more clear.

OH! He means that in the wesnoth forum, it goes Index->Art Development->Topics, but for his, it goes Index->something->another something->topics.

I think.
